How did the Tudors Shape Modern Britain?
We will find out how The Tudors came to be, about life during Tudor times and about the key people and events that shaped Modern Britain. Where possible, teaching will be cross curricular: in English, the children will find out about the works of William Shakespeare and delve into some of his most famous plays. In art, the children will create Tudor roses as well as producing self portraits in the style of Hans Holbein (Henry VIII's portrait artist.) In geography, we will find out about the exciting voyages of Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh and the news lands and goods that they discovered.
A few important reminders:
- PE days: Monday and Friday (make sure you have a kit suitable for outdoors and indoors including warm clothing and trainers if it is muddy.)
- Homework - set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday.
- Spellings will be tested on a Wednesday and the children will then receive new spellings.
- Reading is extremely important, especially in year 6 - remember to record in your reading records when you have read and try to read with an adult 3 times a week to earn reading rewards!
- Timestables - use the games on the weblinks below to practice as well as trying different strategies such as chanting, saying the inverse (e.g. 3x4 = 12 or 12 divided by 3 is 4), asking someone to test you, multiplying 3 or 4 numbers instead of just 2!
- Other CGP revision guides are an excellent, reasonably priced resource to get to help you prepare for your SATs at home.
